The Voyage of the Nauticon: A Mapping Activity

This lesson helps students visualize the geographic reach of Nantucket whalers and examines the outcomes of this global exchange of cultures and products. Students read excerpts of the journal entries of a whaling captain’s wife who went to sea with her husband and plot the points on a world map.

The Nantucket Historical Association preserves and interprets the history of Nantucket through its programs, collections, and properties, in order to promote the island’s significance and foster an appreciation of it among all audiences.
